Conversations with History | April 13, 2011

Harry Kreisler welcomes author Parag Khanna, Senior Fellow at the New America Foundation, to discuss his new book, "How to Run the World: Charting a Course to the Next Renaissance." Khanna analyzes the complex ecosystem created by globalization and how a new diplomacy has become the defining feature of international interactions; the implications of these changes for U.S. foreign policy, highlighting the increasing importance of regional actors and the intricate modalities by which global resources take effect at the local level; and reflects on Wiki-leaks, the Afghan/Pakistan conflict and changes occurring in the Middle East.
